“With Great Risk Comes Great Reward”

A (Tech) Road Less Traveled with ISC’s CEO Jeff Osborn

“When you’re a kid working with venture capitalists, everybody talks about taking their money and running to a tropical island…and nobody ever does. But I did,” Jeff Osborn, president and CEO of Internet Systems Consortium (ISC), a leading developer of DNS (BIND) and DHCP open-source software, said.

“I was 37 years old. I took 15 years off, raced sailboats all over the Caribbean, and blew a king’s ransom having way too much fun,” he continued.

Why it’s worth your time: Jeff has been a member of NANOG since 2013 and represents our community’s incredible professionals. Learn more about his story and our new mentorship program.
